Danny Brown @ Pitchfork 2014 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Danny Brown, A-Trak, French Montana, AraabMUZIK, The Lox, Brenmar, DJ Hoodboi, Falcons, Yung Gleesh, World's Fair, Nick Catchdubs (w/ B.I.C.), Shash'u, Black Dave, Grandemarshall @ 50 Kent
If you're looking for some all-day fun to finish off your Labor Day, the annual Fool's Gold Day Off, happening at outdoor Williamsburg venue 50 Kent this year, should quench that thirst. As usual, it's a stacked lineup of electronic music and hip hop, headlined by the great Danny Brown (playing for his third year in a row). Also on the bill is veteran NYC trio The LOX (aka Sheek Louch, Styles P and Jadakiss), upcoming Queens crew World's Fair, hotshot producer AraabMuzik, label co-heads A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs (the latter joined by rap crew B.I.C.) and plenty more.

Peter Gutteridge, Mega Bog, Iji, EZTV @ Palisades
Peter Gutteridge spent time in original line-ups of both The Clean and The Chills before starting noise-rock band Snapper in the early '90s. In 1989, he put out a solo album, Pure, which was reissued recently by 540 Records and which he'll be performing in full at the show. Also on the bill: Seattle's Megabog and IJI, plus local jangle/powerpop band EZTV.

MV and EE @ Baby's All Right
MV & EE, aka duo Matt Valentine and Erika Elder, have collaborated with J. Mascis and members of Chelsea Light Moving in the past and released new album, Shade Grown, earlier this year. If you dig jammy trips through droning atmospheres and psych-rock guitar noodling, that should be in effect tonight.

Jozef Van Wissem, Woodsman, Ancient Ocean @ Baby's All Right
If you are coming to see MV and EE, you might consider sticking around for this later set: Woodsman will released their self-titled third album earlier this year via their new home Fire Talk. The band make bold steps into mid fidelity on this one and it suits them well. It's rhythm-heavy in a Can/Neu! kind of way, still with their dark, droning textures swirling around. Gothy lutenist Jozef Van Wissem headlines.

Christines, VANIISH, Interval, Winkie @ Glasslands
You can finish up your holiday weekend -- if you're not wiped out -- with an evening of goth and shoegaze at Glasslands. San Francisco's VANIISH (members of Wax Idols and Soft Moon) are playing their first of two NYC shows tonight, with glide guitar experts Christines, INTERVAL and Winkie, as well as Weekend's Shaun Durkan on DJ duty

Smoke Fairies @ Rough Trade
With their name alone, UK folk act Smoke Fairies conjur up images of early '70s rolling green, wistful dreamy melodies and the like. The band's new album heads a little more into adult contemporary territory, but their harmonies still beguile.

DJ Marfox, DJ Cortega, DJ Underdog, Kashaka @ Output
Portugal electronic musician DJ Marfox just played Warm Up this past Saturday, but that wasn't the only chance you'll get to see him during the day outdoors during this long Labor Day Weekend. He plays Output's roof this afternoon, 2 PM start.

My calendar says "Sept 01 2014". Where is that loudmouth herb that threatened he was going to uncover who I really am? Acting the pussy under some rock, no doubt. Unless you know XTAINTX you don't have anything on me, do go screw jackass.

Btw you just tipped off that you are either XTAINTX or a friend of his, you numbnut fuck, otherwise why would you meniton him in your post?

I don't really care what D's real name is, but the amount of clear spurned sexual focus that Brian Cruz has put on him is beyond creepy. D probably gave this clown herpes from some late night suck fest (because they are both freaky freaks AMIRITE)

The amount of homosexual fantasies (not realities) you, 8:36am, have continously posted on this board is creepy.

Just come out of the closet already - we know you want to.

Okay guys, lets just all chill. If we behave like him we will become apes too.

Negative attitude here. : (

3:26 - What the fuck do you mean by "apes"? spambots are programmed to be racist too?

Oh poor Brian Cruz (10:38) deflection doesn't fool anyone, Cupcake. You have been absolutely fixated on the identity of D for a fuck's age, it is clear to all that you have some type of obsessive sexual thing going on.
